The name DYAR means house in Arabic. This is also how the members of the band see the function of their music, an imaginary house in which people feel at home, in which everyone is welcome and in which Arabic and Western music can live together. Nawras Altaky (Ud and vocals), Modar Salama (percussion), Lucas Dols (double bass, including Room Eleven and Tin Men & the Telephone) and Gino Bombrini (percussion, including Skip & Die and Komodo) started the band after their performance with Caro Emerald in a sold-out Paradiso in June 2017.
We heard it through the grapevine that there will be a surprise guest performing that evening too. We’ll keep you posted!
